>>> Brief Introduction to Huanghuagang Park

On April 27,1911(March 29, Lunar year Xinhai), Tongmenghui, a revolutionary Organization, led by Dr. Sun Yat-sen launched an uprising to overthrow the federal Qing dynasty to build a new democratic country, but unfortunately the effort failed . Seventy-two martyrs were found and buried here in the Huanghua Hillock. The cemetery was begun in 1912 and finished in 1921. (It was later determined that there were 86 martyrs, including 30 who were overseas Chinese.)
On the gateway were inscribed four Chinese characters "Hao Qi Chang Chun" by Dr. SunYat-sen, meaning "Eternal Noble Spirit". Two-hundred-metre paveway lined with evergreen cypress trees lead to the Martyrs' Tomb. Behind the tomb is a memorial wall made of stones. On the top stands the Statue of Liberty, symbolizing the martyrs' noble spirit of fighting for freedom and democracy. Along the south path dozens of stone tablets are inscribed with epitaphs such as "Soul of Freedom" "Immortal Spirit". Two stone dragon pillars, each more than three meters tall, stand opposite each other on both sides of the path.
In addition to the Martyrs' Tomb, there are other revolutionary forerunners' tombs in the park. They are General Dawei Pan. General Zhongyuan Deng, General Xianri Yang, Mr. Ru Feng, Mr. Jianru Shi.
The park also contains Huanghua Well, Huanghua Pavilion, Silent Pond, Square Pond, Octagonal Pavilion, Huanghua gardens, tennis courts and other scenic spots and activities services.
